How A Loan Default Or Child Support Can Impact Your License
The Secretary of State’s office has the authority to suspend the professional licenses (i.e. engineers, used car dealers, cosmetologists, nurses, etc.) of those individuals who are delinquent in paying their court-ordered child support. Through this program, the Secretary of State’s office has collected millions of dollars in past-due support. This authority does not extend to professionals who receive licensure through other agencies. For example, other state agencies have the ability to suspend drivers’ licenses when child support is owed.
Additionally, a professional licensing board has the authority to suspend the professional licenses of those individuals who have been certified by a federal agency and reported to the board for nonpayment, default or breach of repayment or service obligation under any federal educational loan, loan repayment, or service conditional scholarship program.
